As we come to the end of another term, Payton had a real good reason to smile today.
She was awarded the Goodhue trophy, this is awarded to students who show integrity and honesty throughout the term.  Well done Payton! We are all very proud of you.

Whakatau Wairua - Te Hokinga Mai


This week Kawakawa Primary School hosted a very special occasion in our Marae Tumanako.
On Thursday and Friday whanau from around the community came with photos of their loved ones to hang on the wall of our whare nui.  These photos are of our beloved past pupils and staff members of the school who have passed away, one of them being Kailah's nanny.  We celebrated this special occasion with waiata, karakia, hangi and even some yummy steam pudding.  Thank you to all our whanau who brought their beautiful photos for our Marae.

Tuna and Takakau week.

Our school has been learning about Tuna and Takakau for the past few weeks and all week the children of Kawakawa Primary have been catching Tuna and bringing them in to school to be weighed and measured.  Alyssa and her sister Talia caught this beauty together, however Alyssa was not very keen to hold the tuna for photos.  Well done girls!

Learning new tools

  

Hello my name is Jackie.  Today I learned how to use Kizoa.  It was easy to take the pictures, it was hard to learn how everything worked on chromebook at first but with more practice it got easier.
My next step is to find other ways to use Kizoa.

Leaving footprints on the internet.


Kia ora koutou katoa!  For our Cybersmart lessons the focus has been Smart Footprints.  For our first session, The tamariki in Room 2 talked about (1)Who visits their blog, & (2)Why they would visit their blog.  We also spoke about places online where people could find something we have said or done.  We are starting to become more and more aware that what we say or do online leaves a digital footprint behind that is permanent.

Wacky Weather, Wacky Tales!


On this wet and humid day, we decided to have a little fun with parts of speech by going onto a website called Wacky Web Tales.  The Year 6 students were already familiar with this site but it was the first time our Year 5's created their very own Wacky Web Tale. 
Whaea Sally went through the different parts of speech such as exclamation, nouns, verbs and adverbs.  It was important for us to go over things like plurals and tenses.  But it all paid off when we began to create our Wacky Web Tale.  It was Hilarious!
Here are some of our Wacky Web Tales from today.  Enjoy!
